Illinois Criminal Defense Lawyers
Clients come to us to seek legal advice or attorney referrals. Criminal defendants in Illinois are entitled to a presumption of innocence, the choice of trial by jury or judge, and a competent criminal defense attorney. We help people find criminal defense lawyers throughout Illinois. The defense attorneys we recommend are typically former prosecutors or have been defending criminal cases in Illinois for so long that they have the same experience as a former prosecutor.
In our opinion, attorneys that solely handle criminal defense cases in Illinois are more likely to obtain a favorable result than a general practice lawyer or one who is not as experienced in Illinois criminal law. While our view does not guarantee a favorable result, if you are charged with a crime in Illinois you should do whatever you can to tip the scales in your favor.
The criminal defense lawyer you hire should be familiar with the judges and prosecutors in the county where you have been charged. Although this doesn't guarantee a favorable result, we have seen that this familiarity helps develop a rapport with the judges and prosecutors. Simply put, success or failure can hinge on a lawyer's familiarity with the procedures and people of the court.
When you contact our office you will speak with an Illinois attorney for free. We will answer your questions and if needed recommend an experienced criminal lawyer that will fight to get you the best result possible. The lawyers we recommend aren't free, but unlike some attorneys out there, they will really fight for you to get the best result possible. A guilty plea stays on your record forever and these are attorneys that will do whatever they can to avoid that for you.
Everyone's situation and needs are different and unique, so there is no one size fits all solution. That is why it is important to do your research on every lawyer you are considering. If you have any questions about your situation or would like a referral to a qualified and experienced Illinois criminal defense attorney, please contact us at any time. We can not promise a result on your case, but we do guarantee that we will give you the same advice we would to a family member or friend. We never recommend a lawyer for callers that we as attorneys wouldn't be willing to hire ourselves if we were in the same situation.
Bottom line is that we have a real record of success in helping people who have been arrested in Illinois. We get that your life is on the line and that you can't get convicted or do jail time. We help you avoid that and protect you. If you would like a referral to an Illinois criminal defense attorney, please contact us. It's completely free and confidential.
